Honest Mitt

Doesn't have quite the same ring to it, does it?

Mitt was finally caught today in an unusually blatant lie.  He's been saying that he retired from Bain Capital in 1999, and that Bain's subsequent actions therefore don't reflect on him at all.

But he apparently told the SEC that he was Chairmain, CEO, and sole owner of Bain as late as 2002.

So, did he perjure himself before the SEC, or did he blatantly lie to voters?  Either way, it's hard to believe he can still be taken seriously as a candidate.  (There are some other issues, as well, in terms of companies he dealt with while heading the Olympics effort, but those are less well-known, and will probably be ignored.)

But he's still part of the political elite, so I'm sure Obama won't start an active investigation into the possible perjury.  Granted, it'd look like a highly political act, but it'd be nice to get Mitt speaking under oath.
